New Temporary Public Art

Gates of Opportunity
Samuel and Deryk Houston

One of the new large pieces of temporary public art to grace the downtown waterfront is 'Gates of Opportunity' by Samuel and Deryk Houston. The piece is constructed of hot rolled steel with polished chrome.

Described as an abstract sculpture being a contemporary take on the old idea of a city gateway. Modern in both design and material, this gate without doors invites us to consider a familiar space in a new way. What does Gates of Opportunity say about downtown Nanaimo and the Harbourfront?

This is a part of the Temporary Public Art 2012 program presented by the City of Nanaimo and The Nanaimo Art Gallery. This piece is currently being auctioned on-line and will be available in May 2013. For details please visit
